A commitment to supporting health initiatives and staying active is helping Zalaris make a lasting impact on the world.
Zalaris was recognized by long-time partner SAP for its dedicated approach to employee and public health during the latest installment of SAP’s “Innovations4Good” series. The initiative showcases partners using their technology and expertise to transform people’s lives and better the community around them.
“SAP Innovations4Good is all about highlighting stories where we are working with our partners globally on technology solutions that are helping improve communities and lives,” said Ashley Tully, director of global partner marketing at SAP. “Technology is influencing our world in so many purposeful and positive ways, and we should tell people about them ... because people want to hear about it.”
As an HR and payroll services provider, Zalaris has long focused on helping companies run efficiently and simply, creating more time to emphasize health or other passions.
Since its foundation in 2000, the company has aimed to live out a commitment to physical activity and employee health. For instance, employees can log all activities on a mobile app to keep each other accountable. Every minute registered results in money for AKTIV Against Cancer, a private foundation looking to establish physical activity as part of cancer treatment.
Zalaris has partnered with AKTIV Against Cancer since 2013 and raised more than $200,000 in that time. They have also seen a reduc- tion in employee absences since implementing the tracking system.
Building on this dedication to innovative cancer treatment, Zalaris founder and CEO Hans-Petter Mellerud is participating in the Isklar Norseman Triathlon next week, a race comprised of a 3.8 km swim, a 180km bicycle ride over a mountain and a marathon on the tallest mountain in Norway. Mellerud is taking on the challenge in an attempt to raise more than $200,000 for AKTIV Against Cancer.
“I’m using this opportunity to show that anything is possible, to be an example for others,” Mellerud told SAP. “Even if you’re busy, run- ning a company, we still need to make time to also think of doing something good for others.”Read more on this link
